Help USCE/Research after 15th September

I'm currently looking for a volunteer research position and an observership/externship. If I get it after September 15th, will I be able to include it in my ERAS CV? If not, how do I get around it and make sure the program directors notice it?
Can I enter it in the CV before I start?
Can I upload additional LoRs after September 15th?

Thanks!

I have been following this thread for quite sometime, hoping someone would come up with few ideas on the issue.
Here is my take :
Usce/research after sept 15th is not a bad idea
- put up a subsection in your CV as current status and mention : taking usmle step 3 on _____and starting an observership/research at ____ university or at a ____ clinic.
- having something to do during interview season , puts you at a better place during the interview to answer the question " what are you doing now ?" You could carry a letter of recommendation by hand to the interview if you like and push it in at the right moment.

Is all this all an overkill if you have sufficient USCE / research? Maybe? But I wouldn't want to leave too much to chance. If you find an opportunity, go for it !

Good-luck people .

Nice one... I was wondering the same thing. However.. That LoR will be useless, right? Unless a program deadline is on October or something.
